    I'm incredibly uncomfortable around my family and I just don't like being there or around them. I wanna join the army as of 16, currently I am 15 and 9 months.
    My parents, just like any don't let me join at 16 as your need parental concent and I just hate being here waking up going to school then coming home. I hate every part of my life since year 7(I'm about to finish year 11). I just wanna leave now at 16 to start fresh. I don't know what to do because I just feel depressed every day and it's not a good feeling.

    It's probably not what you want to hear, but you should think about going to the doctors. It is unhealthy to live your day to day life feeling this way. Trust me - I suffered with depression and anxiety from around age 18 to 21 and although the symptoms still come back sometimes, I am much better from doing something about it and being diagnosed is the first step.

    I have been thinking out doing that however my mind is just set on wanting to leave for the army as soon as I turn 16. And the more time I think of how to convince my parents I just come up blank and I just get pissed of really easily lately

    It is definitely best to make a doctors appointment before making any decision as in your current mindset it is possible that you may find it even more difficult to cope if you do join the army.
    Hey, think of it this way. The army isn't going anywhere and you can always wait a year (or 10) before committing yourself to something that may further hinder your mental health.
